Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Some awkward spots; cannot agree with CSM age recommendation

I would have passed if I had known how frequently the characters mention that there is no Santa. I cringed 3 or 4 times during this movie and cannot recommend for children 6 and under, despite what CSM says here.
